KUALA LUMPUR: Crude palm oil (CPO) futures contracts on Bursa Malaysia Derivatives continued its downtrend for the fourth consecutive day weighed by the weakness in soyabean oil prices on the Chicago Board of Trade.
Phillip Futures Sdn Bhd Derivatives Product Specialist David Ng said the downside may be capped by good export demand.
